Visit the official programme website for more information


You will be supported to try out new ways of working, implement different strategies, and evaluate the impact of your teaching on learners' needs in your own setting.

Delivered as an online course, you will study at a distance, supported by UWE tutors, alongside your work.

Because this is a very practice-focused course, you need to be teaching during the course. You will try out different teaching strategies and ways of managing your classroom. We will support you to evaluate your practice and we will provide clear feedback. We will refer to a range of evidence to support this, including videos of your teaching, audio clips, transcripts, photographs, self-evaluation and feedback to monitor and support your practice and progress. Tutor feedback on your practice will refer to the appropriate English Teachers' Standards.


Studying this Education - International Early Years program from University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) will help to transform the way you teach, with access to new ideas and approaches you can feed into your practice.

You can position yourself as an internationally specialised early years teacher, who is knowledgeable about the Early Years Foundation Stage, with the potential to progress in education management and leadership.

Taking what you have learnt into your school will also add value to the education offer they are able to provide to children and families.
